Hi liana Iím not sure this is a straightforward question. Can you refine what you mean by types please? I say that because we could think of it in terms of species or variant morphs of a given species. You know like saying how many types of dogs are there as opposed to how many species of dogs? I keep members of the genus Salamandra and I know there are issues there re classification with some subspecies in doubt depending on who youíre talking to. Have you started your research with a Google search? How will you record your data so that youíre not simply given a number of types and enables you to double check names? Youíll need to use their scientific names too to avoid colloqualism (is that how you spell it?). Good luck liana I look forward to this one.

Default Re: Salamanders types

Families - nine; additional subfamilies, about six.

Species and subspecies, named, unnamed, or suspected - more than 800. Potentially many more hiding in places where no-one has yet looked [like much of northern Asia for lungless salamanders].
